Full list of appearances
- Height: 7'2
- Weight: 760 lbs.
- Punching Power: 20t
- Kicking Power: 35t
- Angel Claw: Micheal is equipped with razor sharp claws that can be charged with glowing energy to allow his hands to pierce through solid metal, as seen when he pierced Hakaider's lower abdomen.
- Angel Wing: A bladed cutter wing attached to Michael's right shoulder. Micheal uses this for surprise attacks, opening it to cut his opponents. However, it is limited in range and use due to it being attached to his body. When not in use, it acts as a cloak draped over Micheal's shoulder. This weapon was ripped off of his back by Hakaider after Micheal lost his arm taking damage from Hakaider's Arm Shot weapon.
After being decapitated by Hakaider twisting and ripping out his head, Gurjev activated a robotic claw which moved and attached Micheal's head to a more powerful and deadly body, the Micheal Tank.
In this form, Micheal had his thoughts and free will suppressed, becoming a mindless killing machine who could not speak. Micheal Tank's appearance can best be described as a twisted, monstrous version of Kikaider. (A half red and blue body, two wheels attached to servo motor joints for walking and crushing its prey and an elongated neck with Micheal's Head on the end with buzzsaw blades underneath the chin.)
While the killer machine had the upper hand at first against Hakaider with its massive size, weaponry and sheer brute force, the Micheal Tank body was eventually destroyed by Hakaider, leaving Micheal's head lying on the floor near Gurjev. After Gurjev died, Micheal's still conscious head slowly faded away into "death" from the lack of a power source from a body to sustain him, repeating "I am justice..." over and over before deactivating.
- Height: 5 meters
- Weight: 40t
- Power: 5,000,000 HP
- Hell Scissors: A giant claw attached to Micheal Tank's left arm that has incredible crushing power, as even Hakaider's own strength could not break free of it.
- Hell Cannon: The left arm of Micheal Tank has a quadruple set of rapid fire blaster cannons. The projectiles of the Hell Cannon were powerful enough to badly damage Hakaider and shot his arm off completely.
- Hell Saw: High speed circular saws attached to the chin of Micheal's head, used to grind enemies.
- The revelation that Michael was possibly that world's Kikaider did not sit well with fans of the original series and thus was one of the resulting factors in the film's negative reception.
- On his Kotobukiya model kit figurine,the characters name is mispelled as M-i-k-a-e-l.
- Micheal's name is a reference to the Archangel of the same name who in certain biblical accounts battled Satan and his armies of Darkness by leading the Angels in the War of Heaven. In keeping with the inverted perception of good and evil in the film, the angelic appearing android is the antithesis of the angel he is named after in being a servant of evil.
- How Micheal was destroyed differs from the two cuts of the film. In the Theatrical Cut, Hakaider quickly reaches for his severed arm and fires a fatal explosive shot at Micheal's eye with the Arm Shot gun. In the Directors Cut, Hakaider activates his hidden weapon, the Destruction Gun, from his chest and fires it. The resulting explosion destroys Micheal's body and half of the room they were in.
